Cardi B is known for being quite a controversial character, so it may not come as a surprise to many of you to hear that she hosted Thanksgiving for thirty-seven guests... And her "apology" has caused nothing but outrage.
Has she finally taken it too far?
Cardi B is at it again.The infamous rapper, who was recently named as one of the most popular female rap artists of our generation, has sparked fury amongst her fans for her Thanksgiving Day antics.
Now, the rapper had a pretty difficult start in life.
This wasn't a path she ideally wanted to go down...
via: Getty"The first time I stripped I was really embarrassed, I felt like I could hear my parents voice in my head," she told ID magazine last year. "After a while, I didn't even care anymore. I was seeing the money that I feel like I would've never seen ever."
In 2015, she joined the cast of the VH1 reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: New York...
She soon made her musical debut on Jamaican reggae fusion singer Shaggy's remix to his single "Boom Boom"...And the rest is history.
In the space of 2 years, the singer's life took a complete U-turn.With an estimated net worth of around $8m, and even being hailed as one of TIME's most influential people in the world last year, the star has truly made her mark on the industry.
But before she became an awarding-winning singer, she was a social media star.
The star has since become renowned for her headline-making behavior...
via: GettyWith her explicit lyrics and brazen behavior both on and off stage, Cardi B has certainly made a name for herself in the world of music.
But Cardi's outlandish behavior has only propelled her even further...Her crude lyrics and overwhelming stage presence certainly haven't stopped her from succeeding; they've done quite the opposite, in fact. Throughout her career, she has bagged herself a Grammy, 7 Billboard Awards, 3 MTV Music Awards, and 2 Guinness World Record Awards. Not too shabby.
You have to admire her confidence...
She documents every single aspect of her life on Instagram...
Her outspoken nature on social media has landed the rapper in quite a lot of trouble in the past, however.
When a fan pointed out that the 2-year-old actually looks more like her sister than her, things got awkward.
Responding to the fan, Cardi wrote this:
Fans immediately jumped on the singer, calling her out for the use of the racist slur often hurled at Asians.That's when everything took a dramatic turn and Cardi was on the receiving end of intense backlash to which she was forced to respond.
She then said this:
via: Getty“I didn’t know that c****y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–-IN EVERYTHING !!" she wrote in a since-deleted tweet, using the slur again. “We don’t even use that as a [sic] insult and I didn’t use it as a [sic] insult."
She also added that she was "sick of the internet."

Anyway, Cardi is clearly used to the backlash...
Sharing her Thanksgiving celebrations, she Tweeted this:

Something that upset many of her followers who didn't spend the holiday with their nearest and dearest, for reasons of safety and spreading.One fan responded to her tweet writing what many people were also thinking: "37 people in one house during a global pandemic isn’t something to be proud of."
Cardi B responded to the outrage in another tweet, apologizing for her actions.

Though Cardi apologized for her Thanksgiving gathering, she did later follow up with a rather dismissive tweet.
